Introduction to the TTC
This group of courses is designed to help Muslim youth become more confident about their faith and develop the skills to share it with others. This course treats in appropriate depth, with detailed referencing, a number of the most common misconceptions about Islam held by both Muslims and non-Muslims, and the various issues surrounding them. It aims to improve their understanding and appreciation of various aspects of Islam so as to remove any inferiority complexes among Muslims in their practice and presentation of Islam in contemporary society. This is an essential course for those involved in interfaith dialogues at any level. The course manual also has a rich bibliography of highly recommended reading for those involved in sharing Islam with others.
Within the time-table for the TTC’s are scattered sessions for various forms of assessment, drills, mock dialogues, ice-breakers, and fun. In addition brief presentations key topics from other DIN courses are also made, such as from the Personal Development and Leadership Course (PDL), Basic Business and Financial Literacy Course (BFL), and the Da’wah Resource Management Course (DRM).
A major objective of the TTC is the “progressive redundancy of the trainers”. As the course name implies, the goal is to train those who would eventually be trainers themselves.
There are 5 major Courses that complete the whole set of the TTC:
